AURELIUS Finance Company backs Management Buy-Out of M&Co
AURELIUS Finance Company announces that in conjunction with HSBC, they have provided a comprehensive financing solution to support the management buy-out of M&Co, one of the UK’s largest independent fashion retailers.
Founded in 1961, and owned by the McGeoch family, the Glasgow based retailer has grown from six shops to become an important national retailer of women’s, men’s and children’s clothing as well as homeware. With over 200 stores and online offering, 2,000+ employees, an international franchise network and multiple in-house fashion brands including Sonder Studios and Khost – meeting the ever-changing demands of its loyal customer base is at the heart of the M&Co offering.
With the ongoing changes in the retail environment and the impact of Covid-19, M&Co required a commercial and flexible lender to support the company through these unprecedented times.
